Completed this on 18th August, beautiful day and views to die for all round. Tough trek for three overweight middle age guys, but take your time and it's worth it. Magnificent views of Ullswater, Grisedale Tarn and Hellvellyn. Took us about 7 hours (taking it easy) but well worth it.

A long climb up here after first walking up to Grisedale Tarn but well worth it for the views. A good high level alternative to the scarier Striding Edge !

Go from Patterdale up to Grizedale Tarn, turn left and up and back round down to Brotherswater for a good walk with great views.

Took this hill as part of the last leg of a horseshoe around Helvellyn. In cloud, strong wind and driving rain so sadly no views 😏 However, below the cloud at Birks the views were great so will need to return.

We walked over from Grassmere and descended from the mist on St Sunday Crag to a fantastic view of Ullswater. Wonderful.

Walked this from Grasmere to Patterdale as part of C2C and it was a great day with a variation of gradual and steep uphill with a few wet rocky parts, but then a wide windy ridge across St Sunday Crag to peak at The Cape. Views are extensive provided the cloud isn't too low and well worth the effort. The... More
